Sitting in front of a Denver Broncos football game at four years old, Carrie Packard saw her future: “I’m going to make better commercials for the United Way. Those stink.” A little under two decades later, armed with a host of volunteer experience and a degree in Broadcast Production Management from the University of Colorado, Carrie went forth and became…the first female Assistant General Manager in minor league baseball’s Midwest League. She never did make commercials.
Somehow, that sales and customer service experience, along with modeling from a mother in social services, and a father in education consulting and fundraising lead Carrie to a career in development and donor relations, while still carrying that passion for sports, especially the Denver Broncos. When not at work, Carrie and her husband Bob can be seen literally running around the metro area, having spent more than a decade as running coaches; enjoying a local sporting event or brewery, or walking their three fur-kids. Rarely will you catch Carrie without a skein of yarn and knitting needles, making use of any downtime to whip up hand knit socks.
